The Dance Base Support featured in the Intrinsic Reflex protects and supports the wearer providing sensory feedback (proprioception), controlled resistance and critical shock absorption while the Reflex Contour dynamically expands and contracts in sync with the dramatic changes of the dancer’s body, maintaining aesthetic lines at all times.
The strengthening and supportive features make this slipper an important tool to prepare for demi-pointe and pointe work, while the Reflex Contour is ideal for growing bodies and various climates and conditions that can affect foot size.
The built in Dance Base Support technology positions the canvas slipper as a viable option for young students in training.
The Intrinsic is a hybrid sole canvas ballet slipper that has been specifically designed to supersede the full sole ballet slipper. The MDM hybrid sole has a split sole outside appearance combined with the functional resistance of a full sole.
Since the creation of the canvas split sole slipper, teachers have advised against their use for young students. With the built in Dance Base Support, the Intrinsic protects and supports the wearer providing sensory feedback (proprioception), controlled resistance and critical shock absorption. It supports the foot and arch and allows the intrinsic muscles to recover when at rest.
